DCSS discusses bus costs

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County Schools System Transportation Committee met Monday morning to discuss several different cost saving initiatives to help bus finances.

That includes analyzing bus drivers time, bus idling, and putting together an automated system for routing. Right now, some of the 122 bus drivers are forced to park buses outside their home, which can make it difficult for area traffic.

DCSS is working on getting Turner Field and Newton Road to be the designated bus parking areas. It's something members feel will be more efficient for not only drivers but for bus maintenance.

"If we have them all parked at a particular facility with mechanics already there and they have the capability to jump start and address any issue the bus may have at that particular time," said director of transportation Kenneth Williams.

Members will continue to work on plans for their next meeting held at the beginning of December.
